Image © 2018, Lincoln Journal Star || With a terse tweet of a whistle and a slap of the map, USA wrestler Jordan Burroughs erupts after pinning Azerbaijan's Gasjimurad Omarov 3 minutes and 15 seconds into their 74 kg/163 lbs. match during the 2018 Freestyle World Cup at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. "I'm not a pinner. It's an art form to be able to pin somebody," said Burroughs. "I couldn't see the ref the way my head was positioned, I was just like 'Please slap the mat.' That was a big moment for me, I don't get guys on their back a lot. All I know is squeeze as hard as I can and hope I hear a whistle and people cheer." The former Nebraska wrestler's four wins in the tournament were part of a dominant performance by Team USA, as the Americans captured their first World Cup title since 2003 on Sunday with a 6-4 win over Azerbaijan in the gold-medal match.

Francis Gardler's Message: From the April 15, 2018 Lincoln Journal Star sports story by Alex Lantz:
What always separated (Jordan) Burroughs from the rest of the world was his refusal to believe he could be beaten. He was Muhammad Ali. He knew he was the best and he made sure everybody else knew it, too. On the eve of his gold-medal match in 2012, Burroughs sent out a tweet: “My next tweet will be a picture of me holding that gold medal.”

He was invincible, then he wasn’t.
But Rio was just a chapter. Not the last chapter.
He’s rebuilt, confident as ever. He smiles as he leans back in a chair outside the wrestling room at Hendricks.

“I still think there’s not a man in this world who weighs 163 pounds who can beat me in a wrestling match.”
